For the last few years, self-proclaimed “geek designer” Dave Delisle has been making fantastic maps of North America’s subway systems—with one notable difference. The maps are rendered in the style of Super Mario 3, complete with those dancing trees.
Each map is surprisingly usable. From Atlanta’s MARTA to Calgary’s C-Train, each charts metro details in Super Mario iconography, with real-life stations, transfer locations, and terminus stations clearly marked.
While most of his maps keep with the Super Mario 3 theme, San Francisco is done in the style of Super Mario Kart. (Of course, when you can title the map “Super Mario BART,” there’s really no other option.)
